Reviewed June 19, 2014

We rented unit 106 for 5 days and although it was expensive, it was worth the cost. The condo has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen/diner/living room and a balcony that overlooks the pool/spa tub and car parking area. It was spacious and very clean with lovely décor. There was a whirlpool tub in the master bedroom, which had a queensize bed. The 2nd bedroom had 2 double beds. There was plenty of closet/drawer space and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes etc. The living area and both bedroom had tv/video/dvd units and the living room had a fireplace (although wrong time of year so we didn't use it). There was a dishwasher, microwave & oven in the kitchen and in the master bedroom a washer and dryer was very handy for laundry. The location was good and was within easy walking distance of the main street.
We travelled there with our son, his wife and baby granddaughter and had a wonderful time. My only suggestion for improvement would be for extra cleaning products to be included. There were individual packets for laundry and dishwasher, but only 1 for each and we had to locate a store further away to buy more.

Room Tip: On the MVLR website, you have to choose which condo you would like. You really need to look at sever...

The last time I was in Gatlinburg I was 4 years old. That was 65 years ago. I remembered the drive through the Smokey Mountains. The fog, the narrow mountain roads and mom saying we were going to drive off the road. When we got to Gatlinburg my Dad bought me a racoon skin cap, which I wore for 12 years.

This trip we were meeting our Daughter & Son in law and my wife's sister for 3 days and needed a place which would accommodate 5. The unit 414 was perfect. Washer & dryer in the unit was great. Fully equipped Kitchen so we could have breakfast & lunch in our room which saved us money. The view from the balcony was the swimming pool, a winding creek and a mountain view.
We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed in unit 512 and were very happy with it. Comfy beds, nice little kitchen area, close enough to walk to the main strip in Gatlinburg. There were some white stains on one of the comforters, which turned out to be the powdered detergent they use. I called the front desk and the very nice lady went to the laundry and got clean linens herself, all within 10 minutes. No other issues at all, I would definitely stay here again.

I had not been to the Gatlinburg area in quite some time but we were looking to stay at a place with the following criteria: 1. Within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg. 2. Great price (preferably under $100 per couple...so $200) 3. As clean and nice as possible. My husband declares me a "hotel snob" stating I will only stay at the nicest places possible. When we pulled up, we were so excited! We had great service at the front desk and parking was great. The condos opened from the inside and you had to have a key to get on the elevator. When we walked in the condo we were even more thrilled. We had to look at our bill again to make sure that we were in thr right unit. We could have stayed in this unit a month! The conveniences of a full kitchen, the privacy of two bedrooms and the comfort of feeling like we were on a really nice vacation but somehow at home. This place was wonderf and so clean. Great shower, too! The walk was not bad at all. I would hands down pick this place all around for my stay in Gatlinburg or the surrounding area.

This is for unit 305...

PROS
- 5 minute walk to downtown Gatlinburg. 5 minute drive to Smokey Mtn. Park entrance.
- Nicely decorated condos. Felt more like a home vs. sparse hotel.
- Reasonably updated and not "worn down" (furniture, carpet, etc...)
- Two bedroom condo more than enough room for our family of four (two adults, two kids)
- Easy parking.
- Safe property (needed room card for elevator)
- Clean
- Polite staff.

CONS
- Condo needs a little TLC....two main things are the walls need to be cleaned or freshly painted and the towels were clean but worn and not very soft. They didn't match the quality of the condo.
- One remote didn't work. Should check them before turning room over to new guests. Sounds minor, but after a long day of travelling kind of a bummer.
- Our view included the motor-inn kind of hotel next door. Next time we'll shoot for the 5th floor or stay on the even side.

All in all a very nice (and convenient) place to stay. We appreciated being able to walk downtown. I would also read the reviews for the unit your going to stay in since they're owned independently.

Room Tip: Odd side rooms, 2nd floor and lower, will definitly have a prominant view of the next door motor inn...

Was difficult picking where to stay. So many places to choose from. We were very happy with the condo. It was everything they said it would be. Great location so close to the main strip. Would recommend it to friends and family.

This was our third year staying here. We love the location. You can park for the week and everything is in walking distance. If you don't want to wk the trolley stops in front of the condo. We have stayed in three different units all were two bedroom units. They all have been very clean and provide lots of room for us and our 9 & 7 year old girls.
